"The London Fever Hospital, Liverpool Road, Islington; Winter 1874. An unnamed girl lies dangerously ill. When Stranks and Guthrie, two coarse, rough-speaking individuals come to claim her she can remember nothing of the events that brought her to her present state, not even her name. According to Guthrie she is his young sister, Lucy. But as her memory gradually returns she realises she s been kidnapped but has no means of escaping the hideous confines of the basement room they have taken her to. They are hoping to claim her fortune as a ransom for she is really Lucetta Froy, the daughter of a prosperous importer. The ship she and her family were travelling home on from Bali went down and it was believed all were lost. But Guthrie and Stranks survived, taking Lucetta with them. She has no way of proving her identity, especially when her uncle refuses to recognise her and claims her father s business importing oriental furniture for himself. Despite being virtually destitute, and her spirit almost broken, Lucy is determined to reclaim what is rightfully hers "


Oooooooh!! I loved this book. I didn't want it to end.


Thank you for a great book Dilly Court! I loved the characters and the story line. Very well written, I enjoyed every moment of Lucettas incredible journey.
